STB, the national broadcaster for Ukraine, have given the initial details of their selection show for Eurovision 2018.
The selection show will most likely be a similar format used in the last few years with a number of semi finals, with a combination of jury and public vote determining which songs will make it to the Final show.
While details of the amount of shows, dates, acts and songs etc. have yet to be confirmed, STB have revealed that there will be three jury members (as in previous years) and that the first of these jury members will be 2016 Eurovision winning singer Jamala.
On being appointed as one of the jury members for the second year in a row, Jamala outlined her hopes for the competition:
‘As every year, I expect good songs, interesting personalities on stage, charisma and crazy energy coming from the performers.’
In addition to this news, Jamala also shared with her fans that her and her newly married partner are expecting their first child.
We’re hoping for further news on the Ukrainian national selection before the new year!
